I used to have those, but they vibrated a LOT. The OE CJ style do vibrate, but look great in an old school way, allow me to run door-less, windshield-less, or with the doors on. Plus, without door mirrors, there is less to get damaged for the 5 or 6 months they never see the Jeep!

Sry no pics, but I have stock mirrors on relocation brackets that fit on the lower windshield bracket. They work pretty good except you cant see out of the passengers side mirror. Especially with the doors on in the winter.

The biggest reason I like my style is that to most people they look factory. Since I had the spare mirrors anyway, I figured I might as well rig something up.

Plus, I like the '94+ style mirrors since they're kind of tall and give a decent range of view for me.

I used CJ mirros, but do not recommend them. The passenger side one is impossible to adjust and the one on the driver side vibrates so much it's next to useless.

My CJ mirrors do not vibrate at all, even when doing 70 on the highway. I do agree with you on the passenger side mirror as mine is useless. I'm going to find some tubing and bend up a new arm to see if that will help me.

So for you guys with stock full doors what do you do with the holes that are left on the doors from removing the mirrors?

I think I am going to go this route so It looks clean and stock http://www.quadratec.com/products/13025_1202.htm for the relocation brackets and http://www.quadratec.com/products/13011_00XX_PG.htm for the mirrors that is as long as I can cover up the holes that will be left in my hard doors!

I don't know about anyone else, but I remove my "door-less" mirrors when I put my full doors back on. (mostly because they'd be in the way, but also because my hard doors have mirrors still on them)

I would think with full doors your relocated mirrors might not be as easily visible when the doors are on. You'll just have to try it and see, I guess.

I made this using a mirror from O'Reilly. I bent the end part round a bolt and put on a bunch of cold weld. Needs a little threadlock for highway speed but it works ok and should save me a ticket.

I can but I don't because my rpm run to high for my comfort! At 65 am at 2600 rpm in 5 gear but than that's with 4.88 gears and 33's just give me a reason to step up to 35's!

I went cheap and easy with mine. Got a pair of stem style motorcycle mirrors from a moto junk yard (can also be found cheap at any motorcycle shop or online source). grabbed some L brackets from Homey Depot, drilled the holes out to the size I need and slapped em onto the windshield frame bolts. Works pretty good. Though now I'm not thrilled with the cheap brackets so I am probably gonna fab up some new ones. Also the chrome mirrors are gone now, switched to some black ones.

My 87 came from the factory with the mirrors located on the wind shield frame. It's a good setup for any year wrangler.
